Executive producer of Dead Space 2, Steve Papoutsis announced via Twitter that a new multiplayer suit has started to “infect” players today (Tweet was posted on Feb 7). The viral suit is of yellow urban design. It can be unlocked by killing someone who’s been infected. The first infection occurred earlier today when Steve and another designer jumped onto Dead Space 2′s multiplayer on both Xbox and PS3. All players need to do is kill another player who has the “infection”, thus unlocking the suit for themselves.
This is pretty cool idea. We’ve seen it before in achievements and trophies in the past. It works a little better here due to the games storyline focusing on infection an transformation. Hopefully there is more to be unlocked by killing players online in the future.
